Eggs Hatching

Enchanted Forest and Neverland have shared great excitement this week watching chicks hatch in the comfort of their own classrooms! 

The children were fascinated to learn that chicks have a lump on their top beak called an “egg tooth” which helps them break the shell and then falls off soon after hatching. It was amazing to observe the chicks break a lid off the egg by pecking with their beaks and then step out into the world! Once the chicks had fluffed up and dried out in the incubator the children enjoyed holding them and listening to their cheerful chirping!
